Brother Of Local Postmaster
Receives Recognition
For Photography In Italy
Technician Fourth Class Pete
Y'askell, brother of Postmaster
L. T. Yaskell of Southport, is
still in Germany despite the fact
that he's been with the armed
forces since the invasion of Africa.
The reason for this is that Pete
is one of the topnotch photographers
of the war and his services
cannot be so easily duplicated
by another with less experience.
Before the war Pete was an
avid photographer and when the
war came along it was only
natural that he continue in this
work, using his talent for the
Landing with the forces in the
invasion of. Africa, Pete has
been with them through many;
campaigns, in Africa, Sicily, and
in Italy. His aeikl photographic
missions have taken him over
Yugoslavia, Norway, Germany,]
and other countries. The success
of his missions have won for him)
recognition in various forms,
among them the Bronze Star. |
Perhaps Pete's most interesting
assignment from a non-tech-j
nical stand point was a recent
one. He was sent to cover pictorially
the Congressional investigation
party of which Congresswoman
Clare Booth Luce was a
member. When Mrs. Luce returned
to the States she wrote
Pete's relatives here that she
had enjoyed being with Fete and
she also sent some souvenirs
which Pete had asked her to
bring over. She described an

Mr. Jones turned his pigs into
